Man with a grudge.

by

M A Heathcote

When a man gets sentenced
Why does he gaze to the sky
Through an 8 ft window
With tears he can not cry
When a man gets sentenced
Why does he walk all alone
Through shadows of memory
Chilled to the bone
When a man gets sentenced
He’s no longer a child
But an in-captive breed
All men call wild
When a man gets sentenced
His freedom is lost
His pride is an empire
Turning to dust
When a man is sentenced
His grief becomes the thief
Of all he has cherished
Whom wait for his release
He’s a wastrel
He’s a sinner
He’s a preacher of self
Defined by the judge
As a man with a grudge.
For others he says—Have to Much!
